Old Adam in His Eden

She fell while gardening
In the yard,
And came before
The Throne of God: ;
'You kneel before me
As rehearsed,
You who've beat
And stormed,
And cursed;
You, a screaming
Typhoon and savage,
Who got your way
By rage and ravage;
And now you bow
So penitent,
Humble, devout
And quaking bent;
When in your wrath
Did you relent;
Recall yourself
In this event?
Your jealous rage
Knew no quarter,
You terrorized
Both son and daughter;
You tried to break
Your husband's will,
You made his life
A living Hell;
And now you eyes
Are filled with tears,
You huddle now in judgment fear;
As if this false
And humble pride
Will wash away your
Sins denied;
You who lived to terroize,
Who bragged and stormed
With savage pride,
Forgiveness will now
Be denied;
Go now to Hell
Oh Satan's Bride.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
